Malaysian International Furniture Fair wraps up biggest show on high note
Another strong showing of exhibitors and buyers at Southeast Asia’s leading global furniture sourcing platform
KUALA LUMPUR, Mar 16 – The Malaysian International Furniture Fair (MIFF) concluded its biggest show on March 11 after four successful days with elated exhibitors meeting more buyers from a wide base of countries and signing orders right until the end.
Overwhelming praise was heaped on the spacious new Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC) which co-hosted the annual event for the first time with Putra World Trade Centre.
Buyers were greeted with more products and new collections than ever before from the record number of 625 exhibitors from 13 countries. The trade show organised by UBM Malaysia is Southeast Asia’s largest furniture sourcing hub and 25% bigger this year grossing 100,000 sqm.
With an established reputation for robust trading, MIFF 2018 gained extra pace from new exhibitors and buyers making up a third of the overall presence. The larger exhibition space created room for the launch of more new initiatives to drive design quality and business opportunities, such as designRena, a curated floor for 80 top Malaysian companies and MIFF Timber Mart.
Not to be outdone, young designers at the Millennials@Design gallery too reported successful sales and great interest from buyers. The gallery is the latest effort by MIFF to support creative talent with many of the young designers coming from the MIFF Furniture Design Competition started in 2010.
MIFF 2019 will run from Mar 8-11 again at the same venues under the theme “Design Connects People” that was unveiled this year.
